ENSEMBLE MUSIC

Beyond the choral and orchestral music, we have a growing body of works for instrumental ensembles of varying sizes and combinations of instruments from solo flute to large wind band.

INSTRUMENTAL ENSEMBLE

Andy JACKSON; Bottoms Up.  Light-hearted concert piece for bass instruments loosely based on Pachelbel's Canon. The title refers both to the elevation of cello, bass, bassoon, bass clarinet and trombone to solo status and to drinking a toast to that.   Ref AA3009
